World MS Day 2019

My Invisible MS

MS Ireland
01 May 2019

MS Ireland will join with people and other MS organisations around the world to mark World MS Day on the 30th May. The 2019 campaign will be called ‘My Invisible MS’ (#MyInvisibleMS) and the theme is Visibility.

My Invisible MS will raise awareness of the invisible symptoms of MS and the unseen impact of MS on quality of life.

The campaign will give a voice to everyone affected by MS to share their invisible MS symptoms and express what you want others to know and understand about MS, in order to challenge common misconceptions and help people understand how to provide the right support.

What you can do to support the Campaign:
